SUBJECT:

MIL Illumination Diagnostic Trouble Code P0339 – Crankshaft Position Sensor Intermittent Set

 

OVERVIEW:

This bulletin involves flash reprogramming the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) on certain vehicles and then verifying the condition has been corrected. If necessary your next step will be to add a shim to the crank sensor then verifying the condition has been corrected and only if necessary, replacing the flexplate.

There are two repair procedures for this service bulletin. One procedure is for un-sold 2010 LX 3.5L engines and a 4 speed transmission with NAA or NAE Emission. The second procedure is for all sold units.

 

MODELS:

2009 – 2010 (LC) Challenger
2008 – 2010 (LX) 300 / Magnum / Charger
2008 – 2010 (LE) 300C/300 Touring (International Markets)
2008 – 2009 (L2) 300 (China)

 

NOTE: This bulletin applies to models equipped with a 2.7L, 3.5L engines (sales code EER, EGG) and a automatic transmission.

 

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:

Some customers may complain of MIL illumination. No other symptoms will be noted or experienced. Further investigation by the technician may find DTC P0339 – Crankshaft Position Sensor Intermittent is set. It is possible that DTC’s P0300 – Multiple Cylinder Misfire and/or P1128 – Closed Loop Fueling Not Achieved – Bank 1 and/or P1129 – Closed Loop Fueling Not Achieved – Bank 2 could be set along with P0339 – Crankshaft Position Sensor Intermittent is set.

NOTE: P0339 – Crankshaft Position Sensor Intermittent must be set along with the other DTC’s listed above. If P0339 – Crankshaft Position Sensor Intermittent is not set then this bulletin does not apply.

 

DIAGNOSIS:

Using a Scan Tool (wiTech) with the appropriate Diagnostic Procedures available in TechCONNECT, verify all engine systems are functioning as designed. If DTC’s other than P0339 with or without P0300, P1128, P1129 are present then record them on the repair order and repair other DTC’s first as necessary before proceeding further with this bulletin.

Additional Information and Known Issues / Concerns:

If you are reprogramming the 5.9L diesel engine controller on the 1996-2008 Dodge RAM vehicle, it is necessary to also reprogram the VIN after the ECU has been flashed.  To write the VIN to the ECU, you may use aftermarket software support, or use an OEM FCA US LLC scan tool (DRBIII or StarSCAN). For more information, see the FCA US LLC Scan Tool Lease Options section.

  • 1996-2009 ALL PCMs

If you are REPLACING a PCM or ECM and the vehicle is equipped with a theft deterrent system (Sentry Key), it must be initialized to properly function with the Anti Theft module. You also need to reprogram the VIN when replacing a PCM or ECM.  To write the VIN to the ECU and initialize the PCM to work with the theft deterrent system, you may use aftermarket software support, or use an OEM FCA US LLC scan tool (DRBIII or StarSCAN). For more information, see the FCA US LLC Scan Tool Lease Options section.


FCA US LLC Scan Tool Lease Options:

  • For 2009 model year vehicles and prior, it may be necessary to use either a DRBIII or a StarSCAN to perform function required after ECU replacement.  To lease the DRBIII call 1-586-532-8400 or click here.
  • Beginning with 2010 MY, function required to replace an ECU will be supported via the J2534 application.
